A TREE AND
Little Percy Lockyar
the Victim of a
Body of the Child Found
at the Bottom of a
Pierced by Knife Wounds and
the Skull Crushed in by
THE GUILTY LAD IN JAIL.
Had Soupht to Emulate the "Heroes"
of Trashy Literature of the
Special Dl-patch to The Call.
PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 16. - The
body of five-year-old Percy Lockyar,
Is believed to have been mur
dered on Friday night by 15-year-old
Samuel Henderson, was to-day found
ir. the bottom of "ReddieV Creek, at
Fixth and Catharine streets, and there
poems little doubt in the minds of the
police that young Henderson is guilty
of the crime. H-^ is now locked in a
cell at police headquarters. Th<> body
of th« child, wh^n found, was weighted
by two heavy stones, one about his
neck and the other around his ankles.
Hla skull was crushed la and there was
a knife thrust just above the heart and
similar wounds on his breast, side and
forehead, while on one side- of his face
was a long cut extending from below
the eye to the chin.
from what th^ police have been able
to learn, the crime seeuta to have been
one of the most horrible character,
and. if all details are true, it stamps
young Henderson as v degenerate of
the worst type. Testerday after his
arrest, he admitted a knowledge of the
knife thrust, but said that it was due
to the child accidentally running
against an open knife. Henderson be
came alarmed at this, he said, and
threw the body into the creek. To
day, however, when shown the muti
lated body of the child, he admitted
that he was responsible for the other
but he still persisted th^t
11 a an accident.
Thf ' poli •■ it was a planned
murder in which the guilty one pur
posed ending the life of another small
boy, Willie Addison, aged seven years.
Henderson, it is claimed, has * be.-n
reading trashy novels of the wild west
stamp, and has shown a desire to
the ""heroes" of those tales.
Th<=> police assort that Henderson ac
companied Lockyar and Addlson to
the woods, as he told yesterday, but
Instead of any accident happening to
either, Henderson tipd both children to
a tree. Addison broke away and ran
home. It was then, it is said, that
young Lockyar's murder was accom
; •1. Dr. Morten, the <"oroner's
physician, who explained the thrust
above the heart, said that it caused
the death of the little fellow.
The police searched for the body dur
ing all of last night, and it was not
until after daylight this morning that
it was found. Henderson will be
given a hearing to-morrow morning. A
fact that has come out in connection
•with Henderson's alleged crime is that
his father, John D. Henderson, was on
trial before Judge Reed in October.
• harged with killing a man named
Christopher Nelson. The killing was
the outcome of a quarrel. Henderson
■when arraigned pleaded guilty to m;_i-
Blaughter. He was remanded for sen
tence, but some time later it was
shown that the death was largely ac
cidental and there was no murderous
Intent. H" was admitted to bail and

WEDDED ON AN
Sausalito Justice Conducts
a Marriage Service
Between His Sea-Sick Spells
He Makes a Couple Man
Mary Campbell and M. S. Seibert
Evade the Divorce Lawa of
Special Dlsrateh to The Call.
SAITSALITO. Jan. 16.— There was a
romantic marriage on the hiph seas to
day, and Justice Rellrude of Sausalito,
who has grown gray In service on the
bench, officiated and a stranj?er scene
was never witnessed. The Justice long
since passed the half-century mark,
and though he once could withstand
the rolling of old ocean, the peculiar
sensations of the sea now affect him.
To-day the Justice suddenly pave way
to his feelings as he was performing:
the ceremony th;it made a love-rick
couple man and wife.
Mary Campbell had been the wife of
a man named Burns and had procured
a divorce from him last December.
Then Mary Campbell, who preferred
her maiden name for reasons best
known to herself, fell in love with ML
S. Seibert, whose residence is on Sec
ond street in the metropolis, and the
grew apace as the days went by.
Both resolved that the law which the
Legislature had framed to the effect
that people who had been divorced
could not marry within a year was "
bit of foolishness. To circumvent it
they decided to brave the ocean's
wrath and the law's also, and so they
came to Sausalito and hired the swift
tug Gazelle from Charles Forrest and
put to sea.
It was 12.30 o'clock to-day when the
tug, with the party on board, s.'t out.
In the party were Mary Campbell, the
bride-to-be; M. S. Seibert, the happy
groom; Justice J. S. Bellrude of Sausa
lito, and H. Nelson, the engineer and
captain of the little tug. over the
bounding waves, through the Golden
Gate and to a point far beyond the
three-mile limit, the little tug swept.
To the surprise of all the Justice grew
sick at heart and the luncb he partook
of before he left the peaceful port took
occasion to distress him mightily.
When the captain believed he had
reached the limit of the l*nit"d States'
jurisdiction he informed the little party
and the ceremony of Joining Campbell
and Seibert in holy wedlock was per
formed. Justice Bellrude opened his
mouth and commenced to utter the ste
reotyped words and the couple stood up
in the rocking boat to hear , when sud
denly in the middle of the service the
Justice experienced an attack thai left
him speechless. He tried hard to resist
the ocean's tempest but failed, and in
fits and starts performed the ceremony.
When it was at last over, and Sausa
lito was again reached. the Justice
thanked heaven and pocketed his fat
fee, while the happy couple lost them
selves in the crowd.
STRAINED RELATIONS OF
CHILE AND ARGENTINA.
Recent Diplomatic Disclrsures That Tend to
Increase the Possibilities of War.
NEW YORK, Jan. 16.— A Washing
ton special to the Herald says: Little
surprise is expressed in diplomatic cir
cles at the announcement that Argen
tina and Chile are on the verge of war.
The friction between the two govern
ments has been recently very great. It
is known here that the hostile attitude
of Argentina toward Chile in 1892, In
offering the United States permission to
use Its territory for warlike purposes
against Chile, became known to the
Chilean Government only very recently,
and the latter, it is said, has excellent
information concerning the whole af
fair. The history of the intrigue was
told in the Herald of Monday last, and
caused something of a sensation
among the Latin-American diplomats.
The Chilean Government is Incensed
j over the disclosures, and it is believed
j when the facts r«-ach the Chilean pub
lic the situation may become even more
Minister Gan, the diplomatic repre
i sentative of Chile in Washington, could
: not be seen ta-night, but his son told
me that his father had no advices that
; Chile was preparing to go to war with
, Argentina, and did not believe the re
| port. The State Department has been
informed, however, that the relations
between Chile and Argentina have been
mu^h strained, and no surprise would
. be felt If war should result.

that they recognised a larger responsi

"Man," he said, "the last of the ani
